Remove on and rpc.rexd
cmd - userland programs
The on command was an old and baroque way to get a shell on a remote machine.
rpc.rexd was the daemon to support on (and may have been used by other utilities)
I haven't seen this used in decades.
This stuff is buggy, insecure, and belongs in a museum not a modern operating system.
